Johanna Schuster-Craig's research focuses on integration politics in Germany, both from the top-down (government policies and programs) and the bottom-up (social work projects and artist responses). She is also interested in race/racism/whiteness in Germany after 1989, ethnographic fieldwork methods, and the far-right (PEGIDA/AfD) responses to refugees.
